This quarter, ACETECH Vehicle Intelligence were delighted to welcome Bernard Westman from Accessible Counselling Tullamore (ACT) and to present him with a cheque of the staff donations. We were delighted with the amount raised, and were able to present Bernard with a cheque totalling €1050 towards this wonderful cause.It is amazing the difference just a small contribution can make, and it is a credit to our staff who used the machine and donated over the preceding months. We are very proud of them and the fact that this money can go towards making a positive difference in our community.
This financial contribution will go towards the fantastic work that is being done by the team at ACT, who are offering an invaluable service that is available to anyone who is seeking support for their mental health. During the course of the COVID pandemic, they have seen a marked increase in the need for their services while at the same time experiencing funding difficulties posed by the challenging economic climate.
“On behalf of everyone at Accessible Counselling Tullamore, I would like to sincerely thank everyone at ACETECH Global for this very generous donation. ACT is a registered charity and not-for-profit community-based counselling centre providing accessible and affordable counselling and psychotherapy services to adults in the Midlands of Ireland. ACT receives no government funding and relies on the support of the public to help keep the centre running and we are very thankful to the ACETECH team for choosing ACT to receive this donation. Mental health is something that affects each one of us throughout our life and there are times when we may feel overwhelmed and may find ourselves in need of help to address problems that are causing us emotional distress. The continued generosity and support of the ACETECH team will allow us to sustain our service of offering one to one counselling to the people in our community who are at their most vulnerable and are in need of accessible and timely counselling.”
